For 85 years, the UWA Student Guild has published their satirical newspaper PROSH - an annual publication benefiting select charities - all in the name of humour and cynicism. Poking fun at places as small as a local Perth restaurant, to people as large as the national politicians of the day, no one is safe from the minds of UWA students. PROSH has evolved to become the largest annual single-day charity event in the southern hemisphere, pulling in somewhere around $100,000 annually for charities, ranging from social support groups to medical research foundations. In 2016, the charities Headspace Osborne Park, Foodbank WA, Tiny Sparks WA, Bicycles for Humanity WA and StarKick Coolbinia Bombers JFC benefited greatly from the thousands of UWA students selling the newspaper on the fateful day of the 13th April in the temperate morning of the Perth City streets and all around the metro area.
Borrowing heavily from the typical artistic styles of MAD Magazine, the 2016 Bad Fold-It was produced within a tight timeframe (four very hectic days) and features Our Lord and Saviour UWA Vice-Chancellor Paul Johnson in a Kanye West POWEResque stance, flanked by the terrible idea of 'those girls in pink 50s maid outfits' helping to promote the ingenious "5th of the 5th" launch of UWA's new logo and marketing campaign, "Pursue Impossible". The question of What is the 'real' student consensus on the "Pursue Impossible" marketing campaign? is answered succinctly - but the hidden message is yours to discover if you print it out and follow the folding instructions.
You can make a donation on the official PROSH page - there may even be a few copies of the printed edition left over, if you ask nicely and with enough luck.
For mature audiences only.
